Flint failed to collect enough valid water tests in 2019; state says it must report violation to customers


Recommended Posts

I find this declaration to be most troubling since the city of Flint has entered into an Administrative Consent Order with MDEQ to insure there is compliance with ALL legal requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act .

This CO was put into place due to:

"Although the DEQ notice says the order is not based on a finding that Flint's water is not being treated properly, it does claims the city hasn't shown the long-term technical, financial, and managerial capacity to operate independently without significant outside support."

So can someone explain HOW a city with extremely poor compliance to the Safe Drinking Water Act did not notify MDEQ the first time of non compliance to the sampling requirements of the SDWA? Flnt was required to hire trained and qualified professionals to manage the SDWA program with appropriate budgeting to insure compliance.

If this was a private company, the CEO would be taken away in handcuffs.
